Founded by husband and wife team Chef Dan Leung and Wanda Lai — The Rise Global Fusion Eatery is both a culinary playground and home away from home.
Chef Dan leads our kitchen with passion, innovation, and over 20 years of professional culinary experience. His limitless imagination, adoration for Vancouver’s ethnic diversity and global cuisines are the fire behind the creative dishes on the menu. Each dish shines, lovingly crafted with fresh, seasonal, locally sourced ingredients.
innovative culinary creations bring about a feeling of nostalgic remembrance for familiar flavours and a sense of childlike wonder in how they are reimagined.
Dan Leung’s path to becoming Chef Dan was not a linear one. Despite having a natural curiosity for cooking, the lack of encouragement in this area during his youth led to Dan straying away from the culinary arts and into the trade of electronics and mechanics. His success in the restaurant industry is a testament to how talent, courage and the support of loved ones can create new and seemingly impossible opportunities a reality.
